My BO just took in a rescue horse today. I did read the post on caring for an emaciated horse. The horse is a 1 or 2. Will post pics soon. We know nothing of her history. The horse, Gracie, was seen in an Amish field and a lady picked her up and brought here. After the Amish guy sold her the horse for $250! This horse is nothing but skin and bones. Can someone give us step by step instruction on how to feed? We have lots of pasture, stall, hay and water and sweet feet. Is there anything else we need to purchase? How do we start off and when do increase what? Don't want her to colic or get laminitus. We need help so this poor horse can live. She has a very sweet disposition so that is a bonus.
Any help would be of great assistance. I'm a new owner so please be specific, no lingo that I may not know, etc. Thanks a bunch!
